GlobalCapital ECM Awards 2017: our poll is open

Derivatives awards 2014

The poll is open for GlobalCapital’s Equity Capital Markets Awards for 2017 and we invite market participants to have their say on the best performers of last year.

Following the success of GlobalCapital’s first two full scale equity capital markets Awards, for 2015 and 2016, we are now deciding the Equity Capital Markets Awards 2017.

The results will be announced at our third annual ECM awards dinner on Tuesday March 20, at One Whitehall Place in London — so please save the date.

GlobalCapital’s ECM Awards are the only comprehensive awards for equity capital markets activity in EMEA. The purpose of the awards is to foster excellence in the market by recognising the issuers, investors, investment banks and other advisers that were most impressive in any one year, and applauding the deals that stood out for success, innovation or importance.

The awards have been very well received by the market in the past two years. Our dinners have been attended by C-suite executives from issuers, company founders, investors and senior ECM bankers from all the leading ECM banks and other participants.

We hope that you will continue to support these awards this year and are excited to participate.

As before, the 2017 Awards comprise:

-          The Best Banks, to be chosen by our editorial team

-          The Deals of the Year, to be chosen by a poll of market participants

-          The Best Non-Bank Market Participants, also chosen in the poll

The poll is now open, and we hope very much that you will vote. It is your chance to directly influence which deals and market players are recognised as the best in 2017. We believe it is a great strength of our Awards that they reflect market opinion in this way.

You can vote online, between now and January 30, by following this link:

This article is free to view so please feel free to share it, or the link to the survey itself, with your contacts to ask them to vote on last year's best performers. However, it is forbidden to:

- canvass for votes by asking others to vote for you or your deals

- collude with other voters about how to vote

- vote tactically, by deliberately voting for weak candidates

For the Best Bank Awards, we do not require banks to pitch. Our editorial team will decide the winners, considering banks that have pitched and those that have not. But if you would like to engage with us, to tell us what you believe your firm has done well in 2017, we would be very happy to talk to you about it, either face to face or by phone. Over a dozen banks did so last year. If you would like to do this, please just send an email to GlobalCapital's equities editor Sam Kerr at sam.kerr@globalcapital.com

We would like to complete any such conversations by the end of January.

We would also be very happy to answer any questions you may have about the awards and our selection methodology.

If you would like further information about the awards dinner, please contact Daniel Elton on delton@euromoneyplc.com. He will get in touch with you soon to provide further details about the dinner.
